2L job search / Re: Pet Friendly Housing in DC?
« on: March 02, 2009, 12:52:28 AM »
yea, 2400 M St is legit.  Dupont south is pretty close to foggy bottom and McPherson (the Flats is about a ten minute walk to the foggy bottom metro. Unfortunately, most of the pet friendly places are a little pricey (approximately 1700 for studios).  While you probably cannot get a short term lease from the management company at either, you may be able to get a sublet off of craigslist.  Also, Nalp puts out an apartment exchange listing service soon (not sure when, I just remember getting some sort of email).

If you have any questions about neighborhoods, etc, ive lived in NW DC for about 3 years now and would be happy to provide any insight I have.

2000 N St NW accepts dogs (not sure if there is a limit on size, there may be).  Its called The Flats and is in south Dupont (a few blocks from Farragut North and Farragut West (red line) metro stops).  All of my friends that live in DC that have dogs live in Dupont.

Start asking soon.  Professors can take forever to get back to you.

Yea, definitely still shoot off an application.  As far as I've heard, only one person on LR got a DDC clerkship (she is an all star).  It doesnt hurt to try though, and you are pretty much in the best position you could be in.

Can you PM the top 5% range?

top 3% from a t40's school :)  Do a little search on LSD because there are a lot of EA threads with people that have been accepted through the program.  I couldnt imagine you wouldnt get in based on the quality of your school/grades, but Id imagine a lot depends on the number of applicants.

Apply to GULC immediately as they take applicants after first semester.

No.  Most of my friends, myself included, did really well the first semester and not as well the second semester.  As you have figured out, law school is a lot about learning how to successfully take an exam.  You were fortunate and learned early.  However, others will pick up the secrets, step up their game, and do significantly better their second semester.  You have to make sure you dont slack off in anyway this semester and that you try even harder.  You will need more detail in your exam answers and a generally much stronger analysis section to do that well again.  It is not difficult but wont be easy either.

oh, and congrats on the success so far :)  You clearly worked your butt off.

I don't really care that much about money.  I've always had it when I really needed it, and I have saved almost my entire SA salary in case I run into financial problems.  I like to be happy and live comfortably.  You never know when you are going to die, so you have to enjoy yourself when you are alive.  I mean, don't get me wrong, I am not out blowing large amounts of money often.  I live in a studio, so space for purchases is limited.  But, I enjoy eating at nice restaurants.

That said, I could maintain my current life style without spending more than half of my after tax income, so I will hopefully pay down the outrageous loans fairly quickly.

Oh, okay.  Well, they only have the scholarship designations posted.  Those are on the Banner under the transcript section.  I think our actual rankings will be posed on their at graduation, but I am not sure.
